Product Description

The Secret Teachings of the Vedas
provides one of the best reviews of ancient Eastern philosophy and summarizes some of the most elevated and important of all spiritual knowledge. This timeless and enlightening information is explained in a clear and concise way and is essential for all who want to increase their spiritual understanding and awareness. This is a book that can give you a new perspective of who you are and where you fit into the scheme of things.
Is This Book For You?
Yes,
if you want to understand: the science of the soul and the eternal characteristics of your real spiritual identity; the scientific evidence that indicates consciousness is separate from, but interacts with, the body; how to attain the highest happiness and freedom from the cause of suffering; the real unity between us all which is beyond bodily identification; reincarnation and how to determine what your next life will be by the actions you perform and the consciousness you develop; reincarnation found in Christianity; life after death--heaven, hell, or beyond; the law of karma and how you accumulate good or bad karma that will affect your future; how residents of a country collectively create national karma; what is the spiritual realm as described in the Vedic texts; the nature of the Absolute Truth--personal God or impersonal force; how to recognize the existence of the Supreme; why we exist at all; and much more. There is also an explanation of what the Vedas are, how they were compiled, and how they have influenced Western culture for many years.
This book supplies the straightforward answers to questions that are not resolved in other religions or philosophies, and condenses information from a wide variety of sources that would take a person years to assemble. It also uses many quotations from numerous Vedic texts that will show you the lofty insight and wisdom they have held for thousands of years.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good book with some opinion thrown in there, too... 1 August 2013
By Robert D. Herrick II - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I enjoyed this book about the Vedas. There is a lot of good information and plenty of quotes to back up the points that the author is making. I felt that the point does get across overall. There are, however, a few forays into what the author interprets the Vedas to mean. For the most part, this doesn't detract from the message. In fact, I appreciated some of the more modern interpretations. I just felt that maybe somebody else wouldn't take the interpretation quite as well as I did. It's a good book and a good introduction to the Vedic literature.

1.0 out of 5 stars The worst book I have ever read on Vedic philosophy 25 July 2015
By Ozan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The worst book I have ever read on Vedic philosophy. The answers it gives are fundamentalist, very shallow and simplistic. For instance, why do we exist? The answer given in the book is: Because There is a lord, Krishna, if there were no one else in this world, there wouldn't be any meaning because there would be no human to overlord. Really? And this is just one example. The book is full of nonsense like this. I know the rich Vedic philosophy has much more meaningful answers than those. Maybe the author should take a look at the writings of Shankara (I know he doesn't like Shankara because, you know, fundamentalism) or Yoga Vasistha.

Waste of money.
